Is there anyone here who dabbles in magick? Most of my journey I have been focused on my spiritual side, fully developing myself to be love manifest etc. I also am at a point where I fully beyond doubt Believe in myself and all of my truths. Recently I wrote an essay to be posted on my site at a later date about my thoughts on magick & the cultures/religions who believe in forms of it etc. I pretty much came to the conclusion that the real key to magick just like anything else you want to be successful at in this world is believing in yourself. It's getting rid of all the old thoughts of what you think the world is, and just believing you can do anything.
Anywho about 2 months ago I had my first experience where I manipulated energy within the material world to do something that 3 months ago I would have never thought anyone could do. I'm very reluctant to say this as I know how I would react prior to my awakening and probably even prior to me doing it if anyone was to tell me they did, but to stop delaying saying it; I walked on water. It was only 3 steps but it was something I thought was impossible less then a year ago. A couple days prior I had finished reading Illusions by Richard Bach, in it the "god" in the story teaches the other man how to walk on water and manipulate the vibrations of the material world and self to do things otherwise unthinkable. The main teaching was that this world is an illusion. Which is something I firmly believe. An illusion in the sense that we are taught to think we are held within rules of other peoples understanding of things, when truly we can create our own because we are the masters of this domain.
So since doing that I've been thinking a lot about it and why I was able to & the only thing it always leads back to is that I belief in myself so much at this point that it's beginning to have an affect on my relation to the material world. When I tell people that everyone is "god" Me, you, everyone here, we are all the infinite universe, I truly am not just saying it without complete understanding of it, I really mean it, I know it beyond doubt. I literally feel no negative emotion within myself ever anymore. It's such an amazing feeling, so peaceful, so joyous, so perfect. Anyways I am running off topic, I guess I am yearning to get some other things out into the open about myself, but this isn't the topic to do it in, I will write a blog about it after I post this.
Back to topic, so ever since I walked on water, it really began to occur to me that if I could do that, what else could I do? I was very reluctant to research magick on a basis of beginning to learn and perform things due to the darkness that is also associated with the art, but I finally found a book the other day that seemed like a good beginning and that assured me that it wasn't all dark. Thus my journey with magick has begun. I also picked up some Shaman Oracle Cards and did my first self reading..... All I can say is wow!!! If their was ever a point where I didn't believe magick was part of spirituality I am definitely convinced now! I now realize they are actually one in the same.
Anywho Does anyone else practice any sort of magick, and also has anyone else done anything in the material world that is of significance that can relate to my experience?
